The Koret Health and Recreation Center is state-of-the-art facility developed by the University of San Francisco in collaboration with alumni, special donors, and the Koret Foundation. Since its opening in 1989, the Koret Center has provided an outstanding recreational and fitness environment for USF students, faculty, staff, alumni and members.
Programs include lap swimming, swim lessons and youth swim teams, and a variety of water sports. Lap lanes will be open during all pool hours, although the number of lanes available will vary depending on other programs in progress, (i.e., during all swim lesson programs the shallow lanes will be closed to anyone other than those enrolled in the lessons).

Children 12 years of age or older, who are competent lap swimmers, may lap swim when accompanied in the pool area by a supervising adult.
